The Tax Instalment Payment Plan allows ratepayers to make monthly tax payments instead of one lump sum payment in June. Taxes must be at a zero ($0.00) balance before starting the TIPP program. Payments are automatically withdrawn on the 1st of each month starting January 1st. All taxes in good standing will not be charged penalties.

Monthly instalments are calculated by dividing the most recent tax levy by 12. This amount will be withdrawn from your account starting on Jan 1st and continuing on the 1st of each month thereafter until June. An adjustment to incorporate the current assessment levy will be done in June and the adjusted amount will start on July 1st. The tax department will contact TIPP land owners with the adjusted amount that is to be withdrawn from the bank account starting July 1st and continuing to December 1st. When you receive your annual Combined Assessment and Tax Notice in May, if you are enrolled in the TIPP program, please do not pay the amount due.

You must notify Thorhild County in writing at least 15 days prior to the next due date to arrange for withdrawal from the TIPP program.
